An exhibition by Louis Vuitton in Venice will showcase the making of an architectural icon
Escape Louis Vuitton in Venice, one of only six cultural spaces owned by the brand, is set to play host to “Fondation Louis Vuitton Building in Paris by Frank Gehry” exhibition.
A part of the Venice Architecture Biennale, which will open to public on Saturday, May 28, 2016, the exhibition will feature a display of works, sketches and models shared by the Gehry Partners Studio. According to WWD, the exhibition will disclose the process of making the now-iconic Paris-based Fondation Louis Vuitton.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Fondation Louis Vuitton has also “brought along” its current art installation, the “Observatory of Light” by artist Daniel Buren, from France to Italy. Just like its counterpart in Paris, during the course of the exhibition, the skylights of the Escape Louis Vuitton in Venice will also be installed with rainbow-colored panels.
The exhibition will run until Friday, November 26, 2016, or the day before the Venice Architecture Biennale is scheduled to end.
